Today is the last day of July and it is time again for the Friday Finances post.

Every Friday I post about my finances for the week in an effort to monitor my income and expenses. I used to post all of the actual figures but I have recently decided to stop doing this.

I will now post SOME of my actual expenses and leave the rest to your imagination. All income and expenses are recorded in Mint and any amounts are rolled over into the next month.

This week my expenses were:

$7 for the car inspection. It used to be more than that…I think about $12 or $13 but I am too lazy to check now. We used to get a sticker but now all you get is a printout that you keep in your car. I wonder how this will all play out for  the first year with people driving around without a sticker and getting pulled over, only to find out they have a printout.

I am sure there will be people who will drive without an inspection sticker and pray they don’t get pulled over. You need the printout to get your new registration sticker…however I got my new registration one month before the inspection expired and I am sure there are other people whose dates don’t line up.
